The NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill has plenty of the extras users want for in-home use in a machine with a surprisingly low price tag for commercial quality core features.
With 40 workout apps and a 10" web-enabled touch screen for tracking your workouts, you're getting plenty of bang for your buck.
The specs for the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill are:
Most reviews for the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill praise the upgrades from the previous model, which include the new 10" web-enabled Smart HD touch screen, new WhisperQuiet design and the adjustable tablet holder.
You also get a very powerful 4.0 CHP motor (a little stronger than the 3.8 CHP motor on the 1750 model), 40 built-in workouts on top of the ones you get through iFit Coach, which also gives you tracking and sharing capabilities as well as Google maps to choose any destination world-wide to run in virtually.
The 2450 also gives you incline as well as decline, which is great for targeting different muscle groups. You don't find decline on many treadmills, especially in this price range, so it's a great touch.
You can adjust the cushioning to fit your needs, either softening it to reduce impact on your knees and joints, or setting it to replicate the feel of running outside on the road.
Other great features include the generously sized runner's belt, Bluetooth heart rate monitoring for more accuracy (free chest strap included), iPod compatible sound system for your music and SpaceSaver design which makes it easy to fold and store.
The 2450 is very similar to the top of the line 2950 model, except the latter has a 4.25 CHP motor and a large 22" HD touch screen.
NordicTrack took the complaints of serious athletes and improved the power of the motor in this commercial grade treadmill. They also did away with the old QuadFlex™ deck cushioning and added their Runners Flex™ cushioning system, which can be switched off to give a more realistic road feel for serious athletes.
When engaged, it minimizes jarring of the joints so that anyone can use it regardless of their fitness level.
With the improved core features the NordicTrack Commercial 2450 treadmill may just be the machine that can be everything to everybody. While listed at $3,299, you can usually get it for $1,799, which makes it one of the best treadmills available for under $2000.
At this price point, it's worth every penny, particularly with the improved warranty on parts and labor.
